  • I live in East Texas and the oil and gas industry here is a MAJOR industry (of course). I have about 10 friends/acquaintances/relatives who work in that industry either here or in Northwest Louisiana, and obviously we've chatted alot about what fracking is all about. My late father-in-law loved saying that fracking is both good and bad. I also have a good local friend who's spent a tremendous amount of time in West Texas this summer; he and I recently discussed fracking and the industry as a whole relating to that area of the state. --Bddpaux (talk) 20:14, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
My friend (who, again, knows more about West Texas oil than I do) commented during one of our chats, "Fracking has opened up a whole new world for them in oil production, they can [drill] deeper now that they have it." --Bddpaux (talk) 03:56, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Approximately 4 months ago, I watched a brief news-magazine clip (I think it was on CBS, but I can't say for certain) where an oil and gas expert indicated that there are suspicions being voiced that fracking may be to blame for the rise in minor earthquakes occurring in the Midwest and Southern United States. --Bddpaux (talk) 20:28, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
  • I haven't decided if I'm going to fold this source bit into the article yet, but it's an interesting read, so I'll put the link here for later consideration: http://www.care2.com/causes/ohio-fracking-wastewater-test-reveals-toxic-mess.html
